As the song says, "O Canada! Our home and native land!" Perhaps it's not your native land, but you might just love the "True North!" anyway - enough to know its geography.
Canada was first settled along with the rest of the North American continent, by native tribes who are today known as the First Nations. These hardy folk had been in place some thousands of years when French explorer Jacques Cartier arrived. In French history, Cartier is credited with the discovery and naming of Canada, and France soon laid claim to much of it, alongside other European powers. While the United Kingdom had control of the area known as British Columbia, France's colonies dominated the areas of modern-day New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. As colonial history unfolded, Canada expanded from the Atlantic across the span of North America, all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
